Rod puppet is an important form of Chinese puppet. Its structure
and performing techniques are quite different from that of marionette and
hand puppet. Rod puppet can be manipulated by a main-rod (connected
to a puppet head) and two hand rods (connected to puppet’s hands),
known as "three rods", and it is named as "rod" for its resemblance to old
man’s walking stick. In China, the most representative rod puppet troupe is China National Puppet Arts Troupe2, in which Mr. Tan used to work.
